Overview

THE POET IN THE POEM

This is a collection of over 250 poems that altogether seeks to reflect man as both the poet and the actor who handles the helm of his own affairs, on a timed cruise, down his very own banked personal river. Using his abilities to compose and steer his poetic story, faring only as suitably as his capabilities and fate enables him. The essence of poetry is in its use of eloquent apt words to convey the poet's exact thoughts, as they are felt or experienced by him.
Like it is the actor's ability to apply specific skills to portray a scripted character reveals a story, it is likewise the poet's grant to create the content and set the beauty of the words.
If the soul is scripted, if the mind can think, if the heart does feel and the body is specific; then every individual distinctively roams on a course throughout their lives that can be manipulated to fit their own different experience, but not actually change it.
For the poet mans the helm, and the cruise is his composed poem.
